Travel/ transport arrangements: Public transport is the preferred option of transport during the Games and highly recommended for participants and officials when travelling to and from competition venues and accommodation.

All Pacific School Games competitors, officials and supporters who are accredited will have free use of the Adelaide Metro public transport system during the Games. This service allows them to access the entire public transport system in Adelaide, including train, tram and bus systems. Accompanied children under five years of age travel free at all times.

For those supporters/ parents who do not purchase a supporter accreditation, they will have to purchase individual metrotickets each time they use public transport or purchase a reusable metrocard which can be recharged. You cannot purchase a metrocard onboard, however singletrip and daytrip metrotickets can be purchased on a bus from a driver or from a ticket machine onboard your train or tram.  You can recharge your metrocard onboard your train or tram using a ticket machine. You can buy metrocards from metrocard agents or an InfoCentre. To find a metrocard location, click here.
